When Becci arrives for her first week at the Sunday School – an accelerated study course that promises huge personal and academic improvements from just a single day of learning – she’s not sure what to expect. Even so, she’s shocked to find herself turned over the teacher’s lap, spanked soundly, humiliated thoroughly and given a neatly-pressed school uniform to wear.
Still, it works. Over the course of the afternoon, much of which is spent sat at an old-fashioned little school desk, she writes essays, does tests, learns what it feels like to be caned, and transforms her manners.
This darkly comedic Pygmalion-esque tale will make you laugh, wince and beg for more. The discipline is strict and the punishments are harsh, and nobody leaves Sunday School quite the same as they arrived.
